What I’ve Been Up To
God of War (Playstation 4)
I finished the main story in God of War, but I’m not yet done with this incredible game. With about 20 trophies to go, it’s clear to me that my journey with God of War is just getting started. I discovered a Valkyrie, and it really wasn’t that bad, then I discovered a second one and I got destroyed almost instantly. For now, I think I’m going to continue exploring the world, doing favors and upgrading my weapons, and I’ll come back to the Valkyries later. One of my goals for 2019 was to get 5 new Platinum Trophies, and I’d like for God of War to be the 5th, and probably final, platinum of the year.
Halo: Combat Evolved (XBOX One S)
After finishing God of War, I decided that I wanted to revisit Halo. The Original Halo is easily my favorite First Person Shooter of all time, but I’ve never played any of the other games in the series. I played through Halo 1 using XBOX Gamepass, and it was so much fun. I immediately wanted more, and I don’t think I’ll stop there. Side note, in The Master Chief Collection, you’re given the ability to switch between the Original game graphics and the remastered graphics, I think it’s so cool to see how far the visuals have come, but it’s also cool to see that the original graphics still hold up after 18 years.
Halo 2 (XBOX One S)
Following my excitement from Halo, I immediately jumped into Halo 2. It picks up directly after the events of Halo, and it’s a continuation of the same story. *SPOILERS* Halo ended with Halo being destroyed, and Halo 2 starts with the retaliation of the Covenant for the destruction of Halo. *END SPOILERS* I have only played the first mission, but it seems to be a solid sequel to a classic game. Hopefully by next week I will have finished Halo 2 and can give more of my thoughts on the game.
What I’m Looking Forward to
Luigi’s Mansion 3
I picked up Luigi’s Mansion 3 this past week, and I can’t wait to dive in. I loved the original game on the gamecube and I’m excited to see what’s happening in Luigi’s third adventure. Check in next week to read my thoughts
Rewatching Star Wars
I’ve been a pretty big Star Wars fan for my whole life, I remember seeing the movies in theaters and at home as a kid, and I’m excited that we’re getting a conclusion to the Skywalker Saga in 2019. To prepare, I’ve been rewatching every Star Wars Movie (10), and I’m planning to post my thoughts about each movie in a series in early December. I’ll post my thoughts on each movie, give my hopes for episode 9, and finally rank all the movies.
